The e-commerce.

charge shipping by weight


Recommended Posts

I inherited this site from a previous developer. He had originally charged shipping by price of the products. We would like to change it to weight. I have not found anything about this on the forum or in the documentation. Does anyone have an idea how I do this?

In admin, if you click on "Modules" on the left side, and then "shipping" you'll see the different shipping modules available. Figure out which one will best fit how you ship, and click the install button for it.


If you have heavier items and ship UPS, then install the UPS module and it'll figure the total weight of your order for you. (You will have to make sure that you have an accurate weight entered for each item, AND you will have to set the tare weight to "0" in Admin/Configuration/Shipping/Packaging.)


If you ship lighter items and want to use the USPS, and you have an account with them, then you can install that module. Or you can use the Zone Rates for weight-based shipping, too.
